How to remove the haze on new hardwood floors?

Sandra RayKathy HenningGaylyn Tate


After installing new hardwoodfloors, there is a haze that just won't come off. I tried vinegar and water and Bona and it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

    Bona is my first choice for wood floors. Our wood floors were waxed with the Bona wax product before we moved in. It takes a little while to dry so I'd do a room or two a day. Our floors were gleaming!

    Now for cleaning: Really saturate your bono mop pad and move in the direction of the wood, not against it. Apply several times and if it does not shine I would certainly call the company where you purchased the flooring and have them help you get the right results. I hope this helps.

      How much soap % to water do you use? Does it leave the floor slippery or leave a film on it?

    murphy's oil soap does a wonderful job when the floor dries I dust mop it with endust, and that gives my floors a nice shine, and the room smells so nice.

    No film at all. % just like you would for normal mopping. And after its dry, its not slippery at all.
